The Joshua Kane Brand

Joshua Kane is an independent British luxury brand creating beautiful and imaginative tailoring for both Men and Women.

From the finest tailoring to leather jackets and an extensive accessories range encompassing shoes, hats and silks, Joshua has created a unique foothold within the marketplace positioned between high fashion runway and the classic bespoke tailors. Each Joshua Kane suit is cut from one of his uniquely designed fabrics and woven in England by mills with decades of tradition and heritage. His distinctive use of colour, pattern and form using historical inspiration infused with his own personal eccentricity, have created the DNA of the Joshua Kane brand. This traditional quality yet fashion forward aesthetic is paramount to the Joshua Kane brand ethos. Using the finest British artisan fabrics - cut to perfection and stitched with love - a Joshua Kane piece will form the cornerstone of the wearer's wardrobe for years to come.In 2016 the company expanded to the current Flagship store at 68 Great Portland Street W1.
